Lately there's been a bunch of conversation on this blog about The Gaming Krib, a service designed to help parents and children 'balance ... playing time and learning time.' Most of the comments (both here and on Twitter) about the company and/or its underlying paradigm have been pretty negative. Michael Vitelli, President and CEO, has kindly agreed to do a podcast interview with me on May 9 to talk about the need his company is addressing as well as its approach to solving that need.
Check out my previous post and The Gaming Krib web site. Then, in the comments area for this post, please submit some questions that you'd like me to consider for the interview. Rather than answering them here, Michael and I will save them for when we chat. Thanks!
